“No Panda Express but ...”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

RIce King is a smaller chain of Chinese fast food places. Durng our visit, the entree selection in Ramona was limited and the noodles are pretty thick and there were very, very few vegetables in the noodles; the veggies would be nice to have as an option to the rice or noodle side. Veggies (in the vegetable entree choice) were mostly cabbage with carrots, no broccoli (and not much of anything else) in ours that day that we could determine and ours did not look like the selection in the picture on the website menu.

Chicken dishes that day seemed to be a mushroom and chicken choice and the teriyaki chicken. There were a few beef choices, too. Their menu is online for a complete listing of items in all the stores. We were perhaps expecting something to rival Panda Express but did not find it here on this visit.

The teriyaki chicken was pretty good, however. Nicely grilled meat, quite lean, and the sauce added a nice bit of traditional flavor. For $6.39 for a starch plus two entrees, it was a reasonably good value for the price. This store in Ramona was clean and the staff helpful. Would probably try another Chinese food location the next time through Ramona but would not avoid this place either.
